Want to scream? Or maybe cry? Maybe it's just a bad day or maybe you are working through a bigger life change. Either way, freak out is keeping you from creating a life you love.
We all freak out.
It may be because you're facing your fears or improving your relationships; or maybe your hormones are acting up!
No matter the reason, when we freak out it's because we're stuck in our head, disconnected from our body.
One worry turns into another, turns into another, and all of a sudden you are so far gone you don't even remember what you were upset about in the first place; nor can you enjoy the people and activities in front of you.
The good news is, there are so many ways to come back and the body is one of the most direct avenues to turn panic and overwhelm into the ability to move forward.
*By the way, these can all be used for kids on the verge of a tantrum, too!!
I know you've heard this before, but it's so true. Any type of movement brings the focus back to your body, aids in releasing any stress you may have just accumulated getting yourself in a tizzy, and calms your entire system.
2. Go outside
Research shows that being in nature helps to release stress, calm both mind and body, as well as bring about a shift in perspective.
3. Feel your skin
This may seem strange, but by tapping into your sensation of touch by moving your hand across your own arm or feeling the air, water or earth against your skin can interrupt a negative thought pattern, bring you back to your body, and connect you to the present moment.
4. Focus on your breath
When we put our attention on our breath, it deepens and slows. Your breath is your power. It can heal, calm, and energize your entire system.
5. Smell something nice
Essential oils, delicious food, fresh flowers, you name it. All these can calm the body and elicit a new, more desired feeling.
6. Hold a stone or crystal
Sometimes having a healing object that carries meaning for you can soothe and ground both body and mind.
Use freak out as fuel for creativity. When we take action versus just stay in our head, more often than not the need to freak out disappears entirely.
